The National Sea Rescue Institute reacted to a urgent call in Plettenberg Bay yesterday after a diver operating at Jacobs Reef fell ill after taking a dive.
According to NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon they activated the Baycare Ambulance Services and the NSRI station doctor to their rescue base where the ill diver was stationed on a diver charter boat.
“The diver reported that he had been feeling ill the past few days and we suspect that the dive he undertook at Jacobs Reef may have complicated his illness,” says Lambinon.
The driver who was suffering from dehydration and was treated and taken to a local doctor’s surgery for further medical tests and was later released in a satisfactory condition.
